"I visited Alabama recently and a lot of things at Georgia compared to them," said Long. "I thought the dorms at Alabama would be the best I would see, but Georgia's were very nice. They were set up a lot alike and they were awesome."

"I also loved the campus at Georgia at how it was set up. We got to go inside the stadium and onto the field and I loved it. We watched a highlight tape and it was great. The field was awesome and I loved the visit."
